The Walnut Grove Gators continue to roll having won four straight games by an average of 25 points.

The senior boys’ basketball team won a trio of Fraser Valley AAA league games, 87-45 over the W.J. Mouat Hawks last Thursday in Abbotsford, and then a pair of home games, 85-69 over the MEI Eagles on Saturday and 72-37 against the Maple Ridge Ramblers on Tuesday.

The Gators also beat the Kitsilano Blue Demons 70-60 in exhibition play last Tuesday (Jan. 15).

The Blue Demons were previously ranked No. 1 in the province for AAA  teams, but have since fallen to fourth. The Gators (15-2) are ranked third.

The team is at the Vancouver College Emerald Tournament beginning today (Thursday).
